  1. Grant can't take the cup away from RNZYS end of story will be a fascinating meeting.
  2. Don't see a Aussie team to get behind will always support TNZ but then again sail gp gets lots of airtime here while we wait....
  3. The longer this drags on the less sponsorship money will be available in NZ. 1 Inflation is 4.9% it hasn't been that high since 1987 2 Jacinda has spent $50 billion of your money to keep covid out (toilet flush) 3 Businesses are folding every week that rolls on in Auckland. 4 Interest rates have blown out 2-3% in the last few months. P.S I moved to Brisbane in March best thing I ever did good luck New Zealand!
  4. A suburb I've just moved to in Brisbane Australia called Newport has some familer names for there streets the suburb was created in the 90's and I was out walking exploring the neighbourhood when I saw the streets Australia and Courageous with boat pictures attached. Quite the find.
  5. Sad to think the last Australian challenge was that long ago. That LV series is up there with Valencia for me.
  6. What continuation pay check?Emirates are gone if anyone thinks they are going to continue support do not understand to global situation.

  7. I just don't understand what is the point of winning the cup again for New Zealand? If it is not going to come back pass it on.

  9. Okay if that's how they want to do things all good RIP Team New Zealand, Kiwi Magic, Black Magic, Aotearoa. 1986-2021 You have lost the right to the New Zealand name.
  10. Does anyone know who got the top speed overall for the last cycle? I noticed they stopped posting top speeds for the day on social media before the match.
  11. Ernesto Bertarell "The AC75s have shown their full potential. We look forward to hearing about the plans for the future of the America's Cup, and we really hope it will be a growing event that brings together teams from all over the world."
  12. Tuke has been on morning TV he doesn't know anything hasn't seen anyone since Wednesday. "might go down today and see what's happening"
  13. I think it's legend and history that do it you are surrounded by it in Auckland you see the sea some part of each day. When your young "I could go out and sail away do anything take on the world" Peter Blake made a boat out of corrigated iron and started sailing as a child off Bayswater with this attitude. You go for a walk and the water features at some point you go to a bar downtown water old boats etc KZ-1 is always looming over you showing kiwis taking on the big Americans. Most have a relitive that had some sort of a hand in sailing then push it onto there boy/girl That sort of thing I th
  14. Sovereign in 1964 was the last British Challenge to lose the match. Royal Thames Yacht Club.
